HORSES TO WATCH

By: AMERICAN TURF CLUB


TAMPA BAY

DIABLOSANGELEYES: Raced with the pace and drew off for clear-cut

 score as much the best in her latest; 8YO mare a proven winner, so stay on board.

FIREBROOK: Broke running from post position 10 in career debut and

stayed strong to report home a punctual winning favorite; son of Montbrook

 stays on winning path.

GIGISKI: Shows signs of life at times and latest fourth-place finish seems

 she’s at least headed in right direction following some prior poor running

 lines; at a price, please.

MIKE’S FOLLY: Showed improved early speed before tiring in latest – an

 excellent sign in second start of current form cycle that should point to a

 winning effort next time.

OUT FOR SIN: Chased and weakened in latest, but figures to benefit from

 his first experience over the course and is likely better than effort

suggests; next time.

PRETTY GALORE: Had two-race win streak snapped when moved

 to turf for latest, but went well to finish a narrowly beaten fourth; gets

 back on winning track.

UNFACED: Sped clear in latest and held on to finish a narrowly beaten

 second when hanging up a near lifetime best "fig"; stays sharp.

WINGED PHILLY: Tried main track and went fair for fourth in latest,

 but was trying both sprint and winners for first time in career; plenty

 of potential.

 

4STARSPECIAL: INFINITE JUSTICE: Now has a pair of races worth of

 experience here since return from April ’04 layoff, and figures primed

 for breakout performance; turf or dirt.

LONGSHOT: ECCENTRIC TYPE: Now has a pair of sprints under his

 saddle since return from break, and even showed good early speed

in latest; 7YO gelding figures all set now.

 

GOLDEN GATE

FAXENE: If you can toss the last two efforts over off tracks, this filly

 has been involved in almost every start. A threat on turf or dirt.

GLOBAL TRADE: Has gotten better in each of his starts, including a

second-place finish by a head last out Jan. 20. Graduation day is near.

GOOD FELLA (ARG): Lightly raced seven-year-old has faced better in

his last two starts. Is better suited to a starter allowance.

HOLLY PARK: Went a little too fast for her own good last time,

opening up a five-length lead through :21.79 and :45 fractions. Benefits

 from a rate job.

ICICLE RIDGE: Is either a slop freak or a one-run speedster based on

 her disappointing eighth after stalking the pace over a fast track. Follow

 off the claim.

KOOL SUGGESTION: Makes a positive trainer change off the Jeff

Mullins claim. Returns to his winning ways shortly.

PAPIER MACHE: Always gives her all on the racetrack, even if it doesn’t

equal wins. Solid mare is a must use in the exotics.

REALITY MINE: Was really flying in his recent second-place finish cutting

out :21.58 and :43.93 early splits. They won’t catch him next time.

RECHONIC: Think one mile may be a bit too far for this gelding after his

last two races. Speedster gets back on track with a cut back in distance.

TAFFYVILLE: Really turned things around after his eighth-place finish in his

 debut, winning by 10 lengths on the drop down. Try versus winners.

WINDY NIGHT: Finished second at 29-1 making her second start off a long

 layoff. Can do some good things at $4k.

 

4STARSPECIAL: ISSUES STORM: Is clearly a better animal on the turf if her

Dec. 15 maiden win and solid second-place finish Jan. 23 is any indication. Take note.

LONGSHOT: BEST TRIBUTE: Continues to move forward in her last

 three efforts at prices, including a third-place finish at 31-1 last out Jan. 23.

 It’s coming soon.
